Solution Overview

Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading digital authentication company, has used the Machine Identity Protection Development Fund to integrate the Venafi Platform with Intrinsic ID’s identity provisioning tool, Citadel, for chips using Intrinsic ID’s BroadKey secure key storage product. This will automate the machine identity lifecycle so only authorized IoT devices can be accepted. Intrinsic ID technology cryptographically ensures—down to the chip level—that only authorized IoT devices can get machine identities. Organizations deploying industrial and other high-risk IoT systems cannot ensure the authenticity of devices when entering service and throughout their lifecycle. If machine identities can be created or even updated, device authenticity remains elusive. By integrating the Venafi Platform with the Citadel provisioning certificate, Intrinsic ID has enabled Venafi customers to ensure device authenticity through acquisition, deployment and use.
